ITLS International is a global, non-profit corporation dedicated to providing trauma education. ITLS began as the dream of an emergency physician from Alabama. In January, 1985, the first meeting of ITLS International took place, providing a basis for the organization’s growth. Now, more than a decade later, ITLS International has more than 60 chapters and has trained tens of thousands of individuals in trauma care using a tried and proven method endorsed by the American College of Emergency Physicians.
